Ravada works in any Linux distribution but we only support the package for Canonical Ltd. Ubuntu , Debian and Fedora server.

You can also install Ravada using Docker.


It depends on the number and type of virtual machines. For common scenarios server memory, storage and network bandwidth are the most critical requirements.


RAM is the main issue. Multiply the number of concurrent workstations by the amount of memory each one requires and that is the total RAM the server must have. However, recent virtualization improvements allow you to overcommit the memory.


The faster the disks, the better. Ravada uses incremental files for the disks images, so clones won’t require many space.

Read these recommendations if you want to buy a new dedicated server.
